One Letter, Many Angles
We don’t know who wrote this letter, why the author doesn’t reference anything specific about Jesus, or what’s behind his fixation on wealth and oppression, both outside and within his community. With its primary concern focused on sustaining a healthy faith community, James inevitably stirs up all kinds of responses. (Luther famously loathed and loved it.) Working from Elsa Tamez’s classic, The Scandalous Message of James, we begin our October study of this fascinating letter with an overview of its many angles.
